Greed is not a part of human nature. Greed is learned behaviour.
Experts featured in the magnificent Zeitgeist Moving Forward on youtube explain this important point in detail .

You disgust me. How about stop supporting systems that prevent people from the food they need. It is not about breeding it is about entrenched economic forces that create the circumstances where people cannot survive.

The west, or first world countries, indeed have an obligation to do this particularly since practically all third world countries were colonized by first world countries at some point in their exsistence....
I'm currenly working with someone from Africa who is trying to save the Zebu cattlle in Kenya. These cattle, indigenous to the area, therefore better for their use, are being replaced by other cattle...
I asked him about the USDA. Seems as though they are as "loved" there as they are here, by us. And they are screwing things up just as bad there too.
I have enclosed 2 of his responses to share with you. Lots of damage being done.
"Don't even start me with the USDA. They work in the world under united states urgency for international development, and they are the biggest dumpers of dangerous foods in terms of aids any burned [bad??] food staff from USA they dump there including chemicals , Village do not accept free dry milk and food staff any more any thing with the USAID and USDA the villages will take and they will just feed the to the animals.They lost so many children with the powdered milk formula because they were mixing it with untreated water and that made it so poisonous to children when they drink it they were never told to use treated water to mix the milk....
Yes we have allot of Government interference but the biggest thread to our survival is the Billion of American tax money and any other rich countries sending to Africa for poverty eradication.I will foreword you the article I wrote about the donor money to Africa.
The government and big malty national cooperation's are our number one enemy.In my village the large Sugar industry is killing us. first they asked people to clear the forests to grow sugar cane , sugar cane takes two years to harvest, but because of corruption it takes up to seven years sometimes if you do not pay kick back they will never come to harvest your sugar cane,and even if they cut after seven years they deduct so much fees that most small scale farmers wind up owing them money.
The worst thing they did is that they coursed so much land degradation of small farmers by using too much nitrogen phosphate chemical fertilizers and over relying on just one crop without rotation.This has created the top soil to be so acidic and since the villagers cleared the trees to make room for sugar cane crops there is nothing to prevent top soil from getting washed into the rivers then on to lake Victoria.Please google the effect of nitrogen phosphate into Lake Victoria and you can see the damage to the lake. All the river streams flowing into the Lake are carrying so much soil and Chemical fertilizers in such a way that in a few years there will be no Lake Victoria.....
What Heifer International , and Land O lake is doing to Africa and the world it is a shame.Heifer international Animals dies within three months of their arival to Africa....

From the few I talked to, I think the people of the third world just want us to go away. TPTB USE the feelings of humanity and charity to justify their presence in third world countries, but what we THINK of as humanitarian efforts are very often NOT.
To maintain superiority, control and influence over the region, the West has placed corrupt Arab leaders into positions of power and supported the overthrow of those that are not seen as favorable. This has also served to keep their populations at bay, in return for militarization, power and personal wealth of the elite. Sometimes this has been done in the name of fighting communism. The common theme underlying it though has been the struggle to control access to important resources such as oil. Source.
The ones who have everything has a lot to lose. The ones who have nothing has nothing to lose. I bet the only people to survive a global catastrophy will be the ones who have nothing to lose.
I agree with you completely on that, you are right people of the third world don't want any type of intrusion from the west....
"Today I resigned from the staff of the International Monetary Fund after over 12 years, and after 1000 days of official fund work in the field, hawking your medicine and your bag of tricks to governments and to peoples in Latin America and the Caribbean and Africa. To me, resignation is a priceless liberation, for with it I have taken the first big step to that place where I may hope to wash my hands of what in my mind's eye is the blood of millions of poor and starving peoples. Mr. Camdessus, the blood is so much, you know, it runs in rivers. It dries up too; it cakes all over me; sometimes I feel that there is not enough soap in the whole world to cleanse me from the things that I did do in your name and in the name of your predecessors, and under your official seal. "
With those words, Davison Budhoo, a senior economist with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for more than 12 years, publicly resigned... www.thirdworldtraveler.com...
The contributions I make may be small, but I do cater to the 3rd world direct residents individually as much as possible when I travel to such countries. I try to bring clothes, non-perishable foods, and even some books and items of entertainment value for the "regular" people, especially children. I know that is miniscule in comparison to what needs to take place, but at least it is a start.... BTW, what specific 3rd World Country were you speaking of in the OP, if any? Again, thank you for a important, timely thread!
We are the experimentation grounds of first world countries, we are the guinea pigs, any new stuff is now being tested on us, but than it is deployed all over the world. This is the new strategy, in the name of making food crops nutrient rich they are actually reducing nutrients, and this will cause MASS STARVATION.
Actually the people in the USA were the guinea pigs. We do not know if the food we eat is GMO or natural because it is against the law to label it. Babies in the USA have mysteriously "shrunk" we now have diabetes, obesity, and heart disease traceable to the crap we eat.
Monsanto: The Food Mafia
Monsanto is known for many unethical and immoral practices such as employing child labor in India to handle poisonous pesticides while paying them half a dollar a day, dumping toxic waste in the UK and bribing officials in Indonesia. Also it sells the “Terminator” seeds – which if used will prevent farmers from replanting their crop’s seed, and force them to purchase the seed from Monsanto for every planting.
It is very relevant in today’s times with food shortages and rationing going on – who controls the food supply? Monsanto doesn’t allow reuse of its seeds (which people have been doing since the first farms began in Mesopotamia, present day Iraq- 10,000 BC), but forces farmers to buy new seeds each year – increasing food costs. They hire investigators to spy on farms and make sure no one is re-using – if they do – they get sued. Link.
That's a crazy law, how one will know what he is eating if there are no labels.
According to the Center For Food Safety — a non-profit public interest group– rBGH (recombinant bovine growth hormone), also known as rBST (recombinant bovine somatotropin), has been a staple in the dairy products consumed by Americans for over a decade. But since these products are not labeled as containing rBGH / rBST, consumers have no idea that a growth hormone to induce dairy cows to be more productive in order to maximize profits is in much of their milk, cheese, and yogurt....
....Monsanto, who owned rbGH at the time, helped found a group of rbGH-loving dairy farmers called AFACT. AFACT then pushed to ban any label claims telling consumers which milk came from cows that had not been treated with rbGH....
...the labeling battle may go beyond milk.
Why? Because the Food and Drug Administration is expected to approve AquaBounty’s genetically engineered salmon, and has no intention of labeling AquaBounty’s salmon as genetically engineered. The FDA claims that since there’s no material difference between the flesh of the GE fish and the flesh of regular farm-raised Atlantic salmon, they aren’t required to be labeled separately.....
The government is run by high rolling gangsters, they employ people like us, to take up arms and enforce their self serving evil. Shame on us! WE work for them! WE are killing ourselves and our own brethren for a paycheck and a meal. It is not the elite you should be worried about, it's the Morons who point the guns. US!

Do us all a favor.. spread the message to your fellow 3rd worlders..
The worst thing the west ever did to the 3rd world was feed them, their populations exploded due to their rabbit like breeding without doing a damn thing to help them selves.
